BRO solar telescope at Figment NYC June 7-8

Postby Wabi Sabi » Mon May 12, 2014 8:38 pm

Darlings! We just got our proposal approved for to bring a solar telescope to Figment on June 7th and 8th! It's coming up fast but we still need help! We're looking to turn an ordinary looking telescope into a mutant steampunk fantastical scope! Welders, sculptors, makers, doers, hackers.... lend us your talent! If you're looking for a fun project to volunteer with please contact me. We would love your help!


See the boiling, bubbling face of the sun! Gaze upon its terrible storms, wonder at its rivers of flame! Over 400 years ago, Galileo first observed these wonders using the Machina Helioscopica. With minor upgrades, we bring the Machina to Figment, and the sun's fiery orb down to earth for your viewing pleasure.

I'm assuming that the team is based in NYC, you can get the specific address info via PM with Wabi Sabi.
